S.E.X. Review~ Complete Us by Lily Harlem

When two become three, it’s guaranteed the earth will move.
Patrick’s life with his shifter mate Greg is idyllic. In love and lust, they exist in a wonderful bubble of contentment and satisfaction in the Redwood Forest, giving in to their needs and desires whenever the mood takes them.
Until one day Patrick stumbles across a wild dog. His wounds are shocking, but it’s even more sickening how he got them.
Neither Patrick nor Greg can abandon the poor creature and they take him into their home and their hearts. But when the new addition to their family turns out to be so much more than a dog, can they act on what their bodies are crying out for? Will a third man in their relationship upset the applecart? He certainly thinks it will and it seems he’ll need convincing otherwise.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of voyeurism, some injury description and references to violent assault.




Greg and Patrick came to a life changing decision as two became three in Lily Harlem’s Complete Us. The Redwood Pack was at odds with a neighboring pack, led by ruthless leader, Titan. But not all of Titan’s men believed in his ways and some even took a beating to get out. Carlos was one of those men, and soon joined the Redwood Pack where, found by Greg and Patrick in animal form- the man soon became their mate.

The union went from zero to sixty in no time at all with very little angst to substantiate the tale. I just wish there was more.

S.E.X. Spotlight~ Cowboy Dreamin' Box Set



Bull Rider Meets ER Nurse by Paty Jager

I had the idea for a female bull rider in my file of story ideas ever since a friend told me her high school aged daughter was riding bulls at high school rodeos. If you’ve read any of my historical western romance books you know I like to put women in occupations that in historical times was typically a male occupation and having a female bull rider seemed like the best way to toss a loop in the usual male role.

While doing the process I call stewing and brewing, I decided to put the hero in a mostly female profession, though there are more and more male nurse these days. And the best way to have them meet is with her injured from a rodeo and him working in the ER.
Then to put another twist on the story, I had her five years younger than him, he is her cousins best friend, and she had a crush on him as a teenager.

As the story took shape and I added in the cousin and other family members I could see them all having a happily ever after and Eight Seconds to Love became the first book of the Tumbling Creek Ranch series. So look for more books centered around the lives of the Wallis and MacIntyre families and Tumbling Creek Dude Ranch.

Eight Seconds to Love
By Paty Jager

Lacey Wallis has put blood, sweat, and tears into her dream of making it to the National Finals Rodeo and isn’t about to let an injury stop her. However, she didn’t expect the ER nurse to be the man she had a crush on years ago, or to discover that crush hadn’t been one-sided.

Jared McIntyre lived through loving and the death of one thrill-seeking woman, and wasn’t about to let that happen again. Especially not to Lacey. But that would mean he’d have to allow himself to love again.  

Which will it be, a life-long dream, or the love of a lifetime?

You can find Eight Seconds to Love in the Cowboy Dreamin’ box set now available for FREE if you have Kindle Unlimited or for $0.99.

Six bestselling and award-winning authors give you sexy cowboys who will make your dreams come true…


Sandy Lea Sullivan- Cowboy Love -- What's not to love about a cowboy? They live hard, play hard, and love harder. Will one chance encounter lead to something more?

Allison Merritt- Gone Country -- Small towns don't leave much room for big dreams, but offers the comfort of home to a shaken rock star, the daughter he didn't know he had, and rekindles the love of his life.

Stephanie Berget- Tied to A Dream -- No more cowboys! Frannie O’Connell doesn’t need a western knight-in-shining-armor, but when Texas bronc rider, Rob Carter comes to town, will she find the courage to risk her heart and teach him a thing or two about trust?

Paty Jager- Eight Seconds to Love -- Jared MacIntyre, the guy bull rider Lacey Wallis had a crush on when she was thirteen, is back in her life. And trying his darnedest to make her give up on the bulls and get her adrenaline rush from him.

RaeAnne Hadley- Stetsons & Stallions -- Her heart is as wild as they come but Glenn recognizes the drive that comes from pain. Adrenaline can only take her so far before she crashes and burns but he hopes she'll let him in to soften the fall.

D’Ann Lindun- Hitting the Right Note -- Backup singer Peyton Lawson flees her broken dreams to Nashville, where she reluctantly accepts a temporary position with the hottest act in town. Marshall Stone’s last duet partner left him holding the mic...and his heart. Can he trust Peyton to not do the same?


Paty Jager is an award-winning author of 32+ novels, novellas, and anthologies of murder mystery, western romance, and action adventure. All her work has Western or Native American elements in them along with hints of humor and engaging characters.

S.E.X. Review~ Longing for Shelter by Alex Jane

Seth Mason arrives at the Alphas’ Homestead under duress. The Council have made it clear that if his cousins, Caleb and Jacob, can’t tame Seth’s wild ways his very last chance will be used up and he’ll have nowhere left to go.
Seth is horrified to find that he’s going to have to spend a year living in the backwaters of Nebraska. He hates the Alphas. He hates the dirt and the horses. He hates the nearby town and everyone in it.
In fact, the only thing he doesn’t hate is Malcolm, the deputy sheriff. Unfortunately, Malcolm doesn’t seem to feel the same, especially when Seth uses his bad behavior to try to get the deputy’s attention.

~*~

Jacob feels for Seth—knowing what it’s like to lose family—but when his cousin’s bad behavior turns the town, not only against Seth but against all the werewolves at the homestead, he has to put his sympathies aside and fight to save his family and the place he’s called home for the last five years.

Sometimes the only shelter we can find from ourselves is in the hearts of others.




Longing for Shelter was a wonderful addition to Alex Jane’s The Alphas’ Homestead series. Things were not well for Seth in New York and in order to preserve his sanity and possibly even his life, the Council decided to send him to Nebraska to live with his cousins Jacob and Caleb and their family.

Life in Nebraska post-Civil War was hard and unforgiving, especially when you’re used to the finer things a city offers. Prejudice against anyone different, whether it be shifters or natives, Seth’s eyes were opened to the preconceptions of the Midwest and the realization that pack was what you made of it.

Jacob and Caleb, as always, handled each situation that came up with dignity and patience, albeit with a tad bit of growling in between.

The author wrote depth in her characterization of Seth as he transformed from a spoiled young man to someone a mate could truly be proud of. Malcolm, the deputy of Native American ancestry was a humble soul with a passion for his quiet life and Seth’s well-being. Together the men join and the Homestead became larger.

As always, the children, Ephraim, Martha, and Thaddeus, brought a tender side to the alphas with their loving care and protection. Sarah, Caleb’s sister, always a nice addition, and one in which I hope is made permanent to the Homestead…soon.

Ms. Jane’s fundamental research to capture the era was eloquently done and her efforts were duly noted. The dust, the smells, the small home occupied by the pack, bounced from the e-reader as I read page after page, transformed in the era of rebuilding and hardships.

Hints of more books to come, The Alphas’ Homestead series is a must read!

S.E.X. Review& Contest~ Maybe This Time by Annabelle Jacobs



Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Length: 60,000 words approx

Cover Design: Natasha Snow

Blurb

Moving into a new home starts with a bang when Ryan Blackwell celebrates turning thirty. Being hungover means he’s bleary-eyed and clumsy the next day, but even in that state, he can appreciate how sexy and fit his neighbour is.

Matt Thomas isn’t looking for anything long-term—one and done is usually his life rule. Why settle down early, like his sister, when casual relationships are so easy? With Ryan living in the same building, chance encounters are inevitable. When one night together becomes two, a friends-with-benefits deal seems a natural progression.

There’s only one problem: sex with no strings relies on matching expectations, so Ryan can’t help worrying. His huge heart always wants more, but Matt’s been clear about his limits. As passion leads to caring, they’ll have to make some tough decisions—maybe this time, breaking some rules will be worth it if that means they’ll get to share a future.

Maybe this Time by Annabelle Jacobs was sweet and sour, as Matt and Ryan waded through sexual release with little to no strings attached. The two men, hell-bent on keeping their friendship one sexual encounter at a time, soon found themselves in a “relationship” with a major decision as to what’s next?

While I liked both characters, I found Matt a tad bit obtuse and Ryan slightly whiny. For men already thirty-six and thirty, the level of maturity somewhat lacked in their development and characterization.

What I did love about the story…. their families. Both men adored their parents and the devotion and love shined through.

A nice read with likeable secondary characters.

S.E.X. Review~ A Master for Michael by Morticia Knight

A Hampton Road novella
Finding a Master for Michael won’t be easy, but Javier is determined that his boy will have the best—even if it means letting him go.
The Hampton Road Club is a secret gathering-place for men of a more sadomasochistic nature. The 1920s might be roaring, but certain practices are still frowned upon in open society. Michael’s job is to greet the club members as they arrive and to report directly to the club manager, Javier. Sometimes, his direct contact with Javier has nothing to do with the club members and everything to do with submitting to the strict Master.
Javier would give anything to keep Michael as his permanent boy, but he owes his boss, Saul, a great personal debt for helping him when he was at his lowest. Saul taught him that professionalism is the key to keeping things running smoothly at the club. He knows Saul would be greatly disappointed if he were to ever find out about what goes on between him and the club greeter behind closed doors. That’s why he’s never revealed to Michael how he really feels and why he must do the one thing for which he’d never thought he’d have the courage—give Michael away to a new Master.



Morticia Knight's A Master for Michael was everything I knew it would be and so glad I waited to read in its entirety. No one writes historical M/M romance at the inception of BDSM like Ms. Knight!

Michael and Javier were employed at The Hampton Road Club, both dallying in their feeling for each other and immersed into the world of sadomasochism. Leave it to sneaky and ever romantic Saul to give the two men the nudge they need to become Master and boy.

Javier was swoon-worthy~ large, muscled, exotic~ a contrast to the almost timid door greeter, who knew his job and what he wanted out of life. The two men just needed a little help in getting to that point.

Ms. Knight was well-researched. From her descriptors of the Roaring Twenties, to the language spoken by her characters.

Together, the interaction between Javier and Michael illuminated the pages as well as their relationship, thus making this novella a wonderful addition to the series.

S.E.X. Review by Jessie~ Counterblow~ Isobel Starling

Set after "Return to Zero" (Shatterproof Bond book #3)

After the devastating events in the Scottish Highlands, Sam and Declan have moved on to a new, deeper level in their romance. Their commitment to each other is unquestionable; however, there are plenty of questions that need answering about other aspects of their lives, and those who sought to end them.

Sam is trying his best to deal with the day to day frustrations of his injuries. He’s completely dependant on Declan for everything, and hates the way the scales have tipped in their relationship. Although he’s officially on leave, Sam’s mind cannot stop replaying all that happened to him and questioning why, and who is behind it all.

Declan’s relief at having Sam home throws him into house-husband mode. He’s happy to take the reins and care for his partner, however, beneath the surface Declan cannot help but be drawn back to how he felt in the Highlands, and how they were betrayed by a man who was supposed to have their back. Declan had promised Sir James Aiken that he would pay if he hurt Sam, and now Declan has to decide how he can deliver his payback and put his and Sam’s world back on an even keel.



Counterblow (Shatterproof Bonds 4) by Isobel Starling was the best one yet. This series gets better with each book. I am so looking forward to the next one in the series, Powder Burns

As this is a continuing story of Sam and Declan, we find our couple getting over the last mission. Sam was injured and is now home to recover. I don't want to give too much away for those yet to read the series. Ms. Starling story just sucks you in and the vivid details just make it all the more intriguing. I found myself wanting to laugh and cry right along with Sam and Declan. I can't say enough wonderful things about this series.

Please make sure to read them in order as you will miss so much if you don't.


I also had the pleasure of reading her short story about Sam, Top Hat (A Sam Ailen Prequel). This was a wonderful look into Sam's character and explained a few things about him. A very enjoyable read, great for a lunch break or whenever you have a limited amount of time.

S.E.X. Review Our Secret by Lily Harlem

Even when love is forbidden, it can’t be denied.
Davey is a loner and that suits him. His own company, whether in his dog body or human form, is his comfort zone. He’s never happier than when roaming his forest territory.
Until one day he finds himself trapped, injured and at the mercy of a huge mountain lion. There’s no way out—he’ll have to face what’s coming, jaws, claws and all.
But the big cat isn’t all he seems and before Davey knows what’s happening the very real mating instinct has bitten him hard. But feline and canines are sworn enemies—they can’t be together. Or can they? Will the new lovers ever be able to reveal their secret to the Redwood Pack, or is it just too dangerous? Can their love conquer all?




Our Secret, Redwood Shifters 3 told the story of dog-shifter Davey and mountain lion Lawson.  Lily Harlem’s serial continuation picked up where Finding You left off.

Short and sweet, the two men discovered they were mates but lamented over the fact that dogs and cats don’t mix. But, the mate-pull too strong, both men were drawn to each other and their mating pull.

Nice characters with little angst or substance, Our Secret was a sweet addition to the series.
